Overview


With Dougherty's PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULTATION AND COLLABORATION IN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SETTINGS, 5e, you will see how human service professionals help others work more effectively to fulfill their work-related or caretaking responsibilities to individuals, groups, organizations, and communities. This practical text uses a proven generic model for application, surveys various approaches to consultation, examines the organizational context of consultation, and reviews the numerous ethical and professional challenges that today's consultants face. By following this book's structure, you can develop or refine your own personal model of consultation. Numerous new and proven case studies bring concepts to life. A new focus on prevention, more information on school-based consulting and working with non-mainstream families, and some of the latest qualitative data gathering techniques and evaluation methods more thoroughly prepare you for professional success.
